Thanks people, for the compliment. The material I did use for batting is 0.3 mm heating up styrene sheets and the real US duct tape, total 3 layers and later it's be plating.

New astronaut Apollo 12 diorama, this time I did find a hasselblad cam 1/1 clock, old from 1980 a an anniversary edition from Hasselblad.

Theme title: "Beano come on, we do not have time for this."

Wow! So Cool!

I used to own a Hasselblad 500CM camera body that looked identical to the one that you used.

Matched with Carl Zeiss lenses the Hasselblad was incredible.

I always suspected the Soviet Moon landing was faked.

But, seriously, Pascal, your work is amazing! (Or, dare I say, "Unbelievable!”)

This time something new, someone ask me to build a Christmas rocketsled for kids, for a presentation coming December here in the Netherlands does the level to kid thinking.

Rocketsled/sled rocket? does first by a little wooden sled 50 cm long a bunch styrene and thinking how it to make to inspiration kids with spacecraft. I did use a mix of the style, the time machine 1960, space shuttle and the grinch sled.

After 42 hours I have it done with lights all around and in cockpit. Who comes in to sit, come later.

Sure, more than 20, seven of them are plated.

Not all are from Jim Key, also from cS members, their own kit.

Here a new diorama and something else what mabe happen in the future. I did gave it the name "Breathtaking."

A future Mars astronaut on who is working with NASA hardware teraforming. A sphere in which plants make oxygen to breathe, he discharges a part of his nitrogen for the plants. Let say a little mini oxygen pump station, the super reflection solar panel and laptop ensure optimal temperature and the necessary power. Very fun project.

The resin 1/6 figure is from the sculpter Toi Ogunyoku, Jr., the rest is made by myself. I'm also busy with a female version.

See here for more photographs.

  • 1/8 Apollo spacecraft
  • 1/48 metal Mir space station
  • 1/48 Mir space station and shuttle

Here my latest project end result [photo gallery], take a long time to build it up.

A Mars rover scale 1:4, there is use a huge lot of materials, 3D printing parts with help from Michael Key (thanks!) who did my info sizes in some parts. The parts I did give extra details, cables than ll let plating, does it is a metal model. The solar panel was very hard to do but I am happy with it.

Total time 702 hours, cost almost 5K ( not extra time), but here is she wake up out of her wintersleep and recharge herselves for the year 2014.

Pascal, the finished rover is beautiful!!! I was lucky enough to see progress shots throughout the build, with it slowly coming to life. You are very welcome for the printed parts- I was glad to be part of the build. I know your customer will be very happy with it!!!

Really great work.
